Can I use a USB webcam?

Is there an official or other list of webcams that have been tested on the RPi?


There is a list of verified peripherals (and those with issues) available here.

You don't mention the distribution you are using nor the webcam brand/model but since the RPi is so new your particular combination may not have been tried yet.

You may want to do a Google search to see if anyone has gotten your cam to work with the x86 build of Debian or Arch, as this should give you a place to start.

If you try a peripheral that's not listed, don't forget to add it at the wiki link above.

    I deliberately avoided adding my webcam to make the question more general, that looks like the list I was after – David Sykes Jun 29 '12 at 17:50
